Tileyard Studios, King's Cross > Our Home in London

Two Tribes Brewery and our CAMPFIRE Taproom + Fire Kitchen can be found in Tileyard Studios - a vibrant and welcoming creative estate tucked away behind an unassuming set of brick fronted storage units and a nightclub just off York Way, north of Kings Cross in London.

Two Tribes were invited to establish our brewery here in 2017. Our founder Justin Deighton is DJ and Producer who rose to prominence during London’s 90s club-culture movement. His connections in the music industry and his aims with what he wanted to create with Two Tribes, made our brewery the perfect fit for this community.

Tileyard is Europe's largest music community. It is a hub for artists, musicians and creative professionals offering a range of services including state-of-the-art recording studios, rehearsal spaces, production offices and event spaces.
